The Blue Handed brand is started by John Abbate. John worked 25 years for big brands designing up-cycled furniture under ‘R-incarnation’. After that he moved to Shanghai starting his own retail consulting agency, John Abbate Studio, and was a visual merchandising professor at Mod’Art. John is currently creative director at Design Overlay, a retail design agency based in Shanghai. He created the concept of Blue Handed in 2015 by stumbling upon a vintage piece of fabric found in a demotion site of an old part of Shanghai.
The Blue Handed Pin Bu Scarves are new hand dyed indigo, antique “lan yin hua bu’ indigo fabrics, with or without patches and vintage yarn dye fabrics. Each scarf is unique, hand stitched with the character of a handmade loom. Check them out here below.
